There are many times in our lives when we could use an ear to listen and help us through the things that we are struggling with. I can do that.

Good Morning! Why do I feel the need to be told what to do and how can I change it? Because I need to improve myself, and progress as a personal being and a social being. The way I changed it: 1. Appreciating the notification, I consider it constructive criticism, not personal attack. 2. I keep thinking positive, I listen carefully ~ whoever is talking that ... 3. Then I analyze what he said, and reflect on myself ... I will accept that with wisely, gratitude and grace ... 4. Then become motivated to have a change for good, and promise myself, that I must get better. ... 5. If there are people who constantly criticize without seeing the good side of me, then I will recognize them as envy and correcting people, then I will keep my distance from toxic people like this. So I always appreciate myself with all the good changes that occur and feel comfortable in this life. Thanks.
